BUBBA WALLACE, NO. 43 WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY CAMARO ZL1 – Finished 5thYOU JUST ABOUT GOT THE JOB DONE. THOUGHTS ON THE RUN?“I had it wide open on that last restart and when those guys pulled away, I knew we were done. It’s just a different class, a different animal when you get up there. I had tons of fun tonight. I honestly haven’t had this much fun in a long time. It’s been a struggle, but it was a big night for us. When you don’t have anything on the line, I guess it means something different.”
KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Busch Beer Millenial Ford Mustang – HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THIS NIGHT? “A letdown. That’s how you take the fastest car and don’t win the race with it. You spot them the whole field and just an incredible Busch Beer Ford. Rodney and all these guys on the team just did a great job and it was unfortunate the way pit road went tonight because it wasn’t even close for anybody having a good car like we had tonight. It was a great night for performance, just a bad night on pit road.”
WILLIAM BYRON, NO. 24 HENDRICK AUTOGUARD CAMARO ZL1 – Stage 1 Winner; Advances to the All-Star Race “I got a little tight off of (Turn) 4 and didn’t realize how much room was there. And then I actually got the left-sides on the grass a little bit coming to the line. But, it was just amazing. It feels awesome to be in the All-Star Race. It’s a huge accomplishment for myself. Chad (Knaus, crew chief) has been here a bunch of times. But, it feels good.”
PAUL MENARD, No. 21 Menards/Knauf Ford Mustang – “We were just so tight yesterday in practice I felt like we made the tires mad in practice, so we freed it up a lot for today and just overadjusted. It just snapped on me in three and four and then just had to play catch-up with crash damage after that, which is never easy.”
CLINT BOWYER, No. 14 Toco Warranty Ford Mustang – POLE-WINNING PRESS CONFERENCE – “It’s just so challenging. You think about it, we live and die by pit road speeding penalties coming onto the pit road week in and week out. You’re getting the most out of that line, that yellow line."
Camry drivers Matt DiBenedetto and Timmy Hill will start 12th and 22nd, respectively, in tomorrow night’s MENCS Open event.
